    Default Outstanding Mapping Website.


    http://wtp2.appspot.com/wheresthepath.htm



    This site allows you to compare any two maps simultaneously and plot routes onto them. It's got google maps, OS Maps dating back to the thirties and lord knows what else. It might sound inane in my description but its spectacularly useful.

    I have been using this site for ages, a great site.
    Always good to repost the link for new members/those who missed it last time

    The only problem with 'wheresthemap' is that it has a limited number of OS map tiles it is allowed to serve each day. The more people know about it the worse it gets. Swines :p

    I think you'll find (thankfully) that he's upgraded to the open beta OS maps that are covered under a free use policy so his maps are now unlimited. :)

    I can provide a screenshot that says otherwise.

    I don't think there's any need for that. Either way, it's a good website.

    I've been using it for ages too, it's a very good site. It can also upload and download routes to your Garmin and presumably other GPSs.

    The open use only applies to the street level mapping not the normal 1K25 and 1K50 that we'd generally use
